Get undelete software. It's free a lot of the time and you'll be amazed what it will get back.

Google returned this for the 17 best free file recovery programs http://pcsupport.about.com/od/filerecovery/tp/free-file-recovery-programs.htm

... and I was only 95% sure before but it is confirmed... do not use that computer before trying the recovery program.
Lack of arbitrage is the problem, isn't it. And this 'should' solves it.

That is really stupid question.
I reinstalled my system. I thought that password from BitsharesX is the only thing that i need to restore wallet. Like in NXT.
Is that right that i've lost my funds and account if i didnt export my wallet before?

You need the private key to restore your wallet.
How it looks like? And there i can find it if i will be happy enough and restore partition?

I have OS X. There was not so much there: 32k BTSX and 1 BitUSD ;-). But anyway it worth to recover - i like names i registered. Only raw recovery works (without names and directory structure).. So if you guys give me hint how can i guess proper file - that will help.

Look for a file with a .json extension. This is the standard wallet backup extension and the recent versions of the wallet made backups automatically. It would be in the BitSharesX/wallets/.backup directory (at least it is on Windows)

default-20141011T122643-version_upgrade.json is an example of a backup name. This file contains all your keys for accounts at the time it was made.

you can try to find any TXT / ASCII file and take a look into any of them .. they have JSON format ..

I tried through all the night...
Anyway there should be hard reminder inside client about backing up... I am not a newbe in crypto (3+ years) but anyway first time happens.. They catch me... That was the first time i didnt test recovery for client before using it. Big believe in Bitshares... Ok.. can fix looses: account names 21 xhipster and cyberPie: ~32k BTSX or 2.08 BTC... What place in the Hall of Losers?
There is another way... Before erasing partition there was only 20GB from 120 GB free. After erasing 100 GB free... Probability that keys are there is high just in fact that i installed client than my disk was almost full. I can assign bounty of 30% from recovered money for those who can do it remotely...

Ugly but may help you:
http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec

It's basically crawling each block on the disk and might take AGES ... once finished you will need to go through hunderts of files manually to figure out which one contains your backup

The file start with

Code: [Select]
[                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
{
  "type": "master_key_record_type",
  "data": {
    "index": -1,
    "encrypted_key": "SECRET",
    "checksum": "SECRET"
  }
},

The SECRETS are a replacement from me :)

Good luck .. otherwise .. sorry for your loss

Anyway i will try... Thanks..
In my case losses manageable and wont impact my attitude nor Bitshares nor crypto in general. But people are very different. I will be happy if my loss will help everybody... So anyway there should be very hard (red) reminder in client in case of receiving funds..
What repository X client is based on?  - I will fix an issue...

Thanks. And thanks for utility... I cannot find a way to look only for json files.. There is no json format in File Opt. But json mentioned as supported.
There is explanation How to Add your own extension to PhotoRec in wiki.. But frankly i do not understand yet how.. Do you have experience?

you will have to search for "ASCII" files .. that's why you will probably end up with a whole lot of them in the end .. :(

// edit: photorec searched every block on the hard drive and tries to figure out if it knows the file format .. *.doc files look different from *.pdf files on the hard drive .. but you can identify them ... ASCII files are plain text .. and used ALOT everywhere on your computer ...

once you have all text files on the computer you may try to search for "master_key_record_type" in all of them .. maybe use some tool to search in all files
